There, is no game night HOGER MSINttttf The off-season sports now ar keeping up a steady race to se which one can grab off the biggc number of headlines. Realizin that publicity is what keeps th games going, baseball, football an track moguls have scheduled som sort of winter meeting about ev ery other week to discuss "im portant business." Baseball had its annual winte meetings in December, will hoi another erand rxm-wow wit Judge Landis in the near futur to discuss post-Avar plans. The pr grid circuit's season ended n eently, and now the league's mee ·ng is eel tine under way. The indoor track season is com ing up, and the top runners ai giving out with their propose training schedules and how th future Ume lor the mile wi eventually reach 4 minutes. Individually Then, too, there are all the in dividual stories that make th sports pages. Marius Russo's re tirement, the firing of Tony Laz zen, Joe Gordon's "retirement and comeback and all the rest o them designed to stimulate inter est and put fans on edge waitin lor the season to arrive About the only sport that doesn make the news during: the off-sea son is basketball, and that is be "' the biggest interest on a na . ,, basls is collegiate basket ball no t professional. Perhaps single meeting of the rules com :^ takes care of the job unt the following year. And the cat sport doesn't lose popularity We're not trying to condemn th obvious attempt for publicity--it all a part of the game--we're jus trying to put a finger on the tren of the sports picture and how functions during the off-season N 'pedless to say, it does a good jo ably accomplishes its' purpose! No Challenge And speaking of professiona sports, basketball in particular w seriously doubt if the play-for pay cagers will ever make seriou inroads into the college domina tion. Probably one of the main rea sons for this lies in the fact tha college basketball does not produc enough outstanding name player to draw the crowds when the turn pro. Again, the professionals are not organized in leagues as strongly as they are In baseba! and football. Because of this, your collet: player is reluctant to sign up wit a professional' outfit The pay i not high, and the teams do no draw the crowds. If this cycl keeps up, you can look for pn basketball to stay in the compara tive doldrums in which it has been in the past.

But it is a postwar plan tha may materialize. "I believe in proceeding on a expansion,, always' theme." sai Commissioner Elmer layden the pro league. "With this mind, any outfit is bound t progress. It may develop at th meeting that plans will be laid fo expansion westward, but an program [will have to be on non-operative basis until afte the war." Layden said owners will dis :uss team operations, schedule and franchises. The most signifi cant entry on the agenda ap peared to be the question of wha teams will comprise the league i 1944. It was virtually assured tha the Cleveland rams would re join competition after droppin out for a year when the arme forces lified t'-ir executive per sonncl. Pittsburgh was cxpecte to break up housekeeping wit Philadelphia and enler its ow team to re-establish the full 10 team alignment. Charles "Chili" Walsh, who \vi engineer the Cleveland club i its return engagement, will creat as much havoc as Uncle Sam among the league's rosters whe the Hams reorganize. Clevelan merely loaned its talent to othe teams last season, so Walsh wil be reclaiming such stars as Che Adams of Green Bay, Dant Magnani of the Chicago Bears Ben Hightower and Riley Mathe son of Detroit. Jake Fnwcett o Brooklyn, and Red Conkrigh and Joe Gibson of Washington. The question remained whethe the league would be further ex panded by such teams as th Boston Yanks, who were voted franchise last year and may tr to operate this season if the. find they can obtain sufficien personnel. Buffalo, N. Y., also has applie for a membership in the selec circle of money-makers. Report edly, Sam Cordovano, line coac at Columbia, Hied the Buffalo ap plication, which previously ha been submitted and then with drawn by Don Ameche, film ac tor. Ameche eventually wants t obtain a Los Angeles franchise San Francisco also has wooed th league, making at least one* over ture to "let me info your frater nity." T h e westward expansion t r ^ sets the stamp of approval from Uiyden, who can visualize grea Ihmgs in store for professiona .ootball--but. not. until, afte thousands of American athletes can doff steel helmets for leather ones.

U.R)--The "body contact" game of football won new- praises Tuesday night from the navy and marine corps as first- class training for battle against the Japanese. Addressing the annual trophy dinner of Washington's touchdown club, Navy Secretary Frank Knox declared: · "The navy believes In the type of sport that involves body contact. We are fiehtin* a desperate war . . . a war in which you kill or set killed. Nothing prepares a man better for that kind o( war especially in the Pacific, than the kind or training you set on the football field." Lt. Gen. A. A. Vaudegrift, new commandant of the marine corps, backed up the navy chief by saying: "I have found that the man who thinks quickly on the football field thinks quickly in the.jungle and on the field oC battle." Defending the navy's inclusion of football in its training program Knox told a cheering audience tnat he had "the greatest respect" for Secretary of War Henry L Stimson, "but on the question of maintaining football in 'our services, we differ." Top commanders of the nation's services handed out prized trophies to some of the sports' leading Players and men.
